5. And I thought *I* was
tossing a grenade when I posted in the Gun forum. :)

I would say that given the inability to formulate any opinion at birth, this statement is going to lead to a LOT of discussion of semantics.

"Forced" is a pretty loaded term. True in some cases, not so in others. I see religion as learned behavior, taught by parents, and in my view, right up there with the Easter Bunny and Santa.

If you are lucky, you also learn to reason and use logic as you grow up, then you get to test everything you were taught: Morality, religion, politics, etc.
